As we sit on the heels of a global tragedy, an airplane willed with passengers who have friends and family they’ll never see again lost in the Indian Ocean, it’s hard not to face the fact that, with all the advancements of modern technology, we only have so much control over our lives. We only have so much say over what happens to us. We can only know so much.
“The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
My challenge to you today is to appreciate the here and the now.
Don’t wait for something to make it special.
It is special purely for the reason that you had no clue if the here and now was going to last this long, but it did.
So where do you start? Maybe just with a couple of questions.
What is important to you?
What is running you ragged?
What will you regret as your last moments arrive?
What will you be most proud of as your last moments arrive?
Now sounds like a good time to think about it.
In case you need some encouragement, here were some great intents from the site this week. People are getting focused on what’s important. You can too!
